- I'm a shy, sappy idealist who loves people, thinks too much, and likely lives more in her head than in the real world. Writing, art, music, prayer, family, and being in nature make me happy, and if I were a tragic heroine procrastination would be my hamartia.
I occasionally post the odd poem or digital drawing here, and sometimes write for roleplays and storybooks. Mostly lurk.

My favorite prayer:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
